Good waterbrush! I can't say I used it all day everyday but i've been able to paint just about anywhere with this brush its a lovely thing to have (the tip is now a bit tinted from uses but this doesn't rub off i assume it has just tinted the bristles)! Its a soft sort of plastic brush and is very smooth. Once the top came off in my bag- i thought it might be ruined because it was so smashed but i squeezed some water into it and it was good as new. Its pretty safe from abuse. If you want to color more areas i suggest getting something larger than medium.

Dry watercolors are best for this kind of pen. Sheet water colors as well. i use sheets of watercolor paper (peerless) and glue them in my wet/dry media sketchbook and basically paint wherever without pulling out a watercolor tray. This set up has been pretty ideal for me.

Anyway- get this pen if you like to paint and go! get multiple different sizes too :)

Really very convenient to just carry around this pen and be ready to paint anywhere. Of course that means I might become that chick who randomly paints around campus...

I love this brush. Just keep in mind that it's not a watercolor brush and it's not really a brush pen either. The brush hairs are tough, they're a soft plastic. My 3-yr-old can mash them but they survive no problem. This brush is mostly good for spreading water around, and for brush lines if you're using an ink (It's nice with paint cakes, ok with tubes). Great flow, just don't squeeze it like you're trying to kill it. Great for water storage too. The plastic absorbs some of the color, so make sure you wash the bristles.

Can't say enough great things about this water brush. I am not very kind to it (I travel a lot), and it has yet to leak at all! I have left it for months with water in it, and I saw no decline in the quality of this brush pen. Overall, I am super impressed with the Pentel Water Brush!

This is so convenient for watercolor painting. I took my supplies camping and this worked great!

I like it and I hate it at the same time.
It definitely takes some getting used to. My brush either had too much water coming out or not enough. If I squeezed the body to get water out to wet my paints, it would continue dripping for a while and as a result dilute my paint.
WATERCOLOR ONLY. I mean, you can try with oils and acrylic, but this thing is meant for watercolors.
Medium is a good size. I think the compact version is a bit too bulky.
The technique I found best for cry watercolors was to unscrew the water chamber from the brush and squeeze a drop of water into each pan. Then screw it back on and use the brush like normal. It's a bit counter intuitive.
This brush also stains pretty easily even though I'm pretty meticulous about cleaning it. Purple and black especially. Cleaning the tip is easy. You just keep squeezing the body and rubbing it on some paper. I find it time consuming. Carrying a paper cup and a bottle of water is easy enough for me to do.

I am not a watercolor painter person at all but this brush made it very easy to handle. Very precise and fun to work with.

Miraculous. I don't understand how this thing works, but it does. I can use jet black watercolor, paint with it, and then rub this on a paper towel and ALL of the black washes away, leaving the bristles clean. Just amazing.

It's also a great brush, I should say. Perfect portability.

This pen is pretty cool - I am still figuring out how to master it, but I love the watercolor effect for brush lettering, and this does the trick. I've actually been using it with gouache vs. watercolor (not sure if that is recommended, but it hasn't died yet!).

I like how it doesn't leak and it saves me the trouble of repeatedly dipping my brush in water when I'm painting! The only problem is I don't know how to wash it between colors, but that's not a big deal.
